Here are a couple of pre-show notes.
The arena was advertising the TNA shows outside the building.
They had WWE '13 booths dotted around to play the game which does seem pretty good. They had limited merch which only included John Cena, R-Truth, Dolph Ziggler, CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, The Miz, Zack Ryder & Randy Orton.
The voting match was the divas match which was Eve vs. Layla. We had to vote if we wanted a Triple Threat with AJ in.
The first match was Santino Marella and Brodus Clay vs. Epico & Primo
This was the typical comedy match which warmed the crowed up very well and as expected Santino and Clay won.
Next we had a Dolph Ziggler promo where they lost the video feed.
Tensai vs. Michael McGillicutty.
A very okay match that had McGillicutty fight as the underdog and won by Roll-Up. Man it goes to show how far Tensai has fallen.
New we had the Divas championship match and of course AJ was voted in. An okay match for the first Divas match I've seen in a couple of months. They did a false finish similar to the Raw report where AJ won (huge pop) but the match was restarted by Vikki and Eve took the win with a Roll Up.
Next up and semi main event was Dolph vs. Cena.
Solid match where Dolph worked over Cena most of the way. Dolph did a great HBK spot (Tuning up the band) but missed. The ref got knocked out and Vickie ran back in and then she chickened out after AJ ran in! Her and Cena had a moment and then hit Dolph with the briefcase and the ref came to and Cena hit the FU for the win!
Ryder vs. Cesaro.
Best Wrestling match on the card. Some great moments and the crowed was well behind Ryder. Cesaro got the win.
Team Rhodes Scholars vs Team Hell No.
Typical tag team match as expected that was pretty much the same as it was on Raw. Couple of funny moments after.
Main event time!
CM Punk vs. Ryback
Punk came in and ripped on a Football (Soccer) Goalkeeper who played for Nottingham. Was really funny. Again something similar to what has been on the house shows. Punk playing the coward. Team Rhode Scholars did a run in so it ended in DQ. Ryback with a Cena style celebration after and we got sent home happy.
End of show notes.
This was my first WWE show and I was very happy with it. Feel slightly cheated at the end but I was in Awe of Punk but it didn't matter.
Normally people do biggest heel and face reactions but ill do them mixed in.
Team Hell No
Ryback was over to the same extent as Cena. Yeah really! I really hope they don't mess that one up because he can be huge!
Cena's new (old) top is Green.
